Somewhere in the world, Macklemore is still smiling.
Last night, the Seattle Seahawks took home the Super Bowl XLVIII trophy for the first time in franchise history, beating out the Denver Broncos. The game ended with a score of 43-8, the Seahawks dominating from start to finish – thanks especially to the team’s league-best defense.
Seahawks standouts included quarterback Russell Wilson, cornerback Richard Sherman, who left the game early due to an ankle injury, and coach Pete Carroll, who started with the team four years ago.
Legendary quarterback Peyton Manning (playing his second year with the Broncos) was seeking to cement his legacy as one of the best quarterbacks ever with a win. So the brutal loss found the world waiting with bated breath to hear what the former Colts player would say. Although disappointed, Peyton told ESPN he wouldn’t call the loss “embarrassing.”
“It’s not embarrassing at all, I would never use that word,” Manning said after the game. “The word ’embarrassing’ is an insulting word, to tell you the truth.”
Richard Sherman also commended the player, calling him a future Hall Of Fame member:
Peyton is the Classiest person/player I have ever met! I could learn so much from him! Thank you for being a great Competitor and person
